Pastor Sam Collier of Atlanta, GA has a story to tell. Less than 10 years ago, he met his biological family for the first time on the Steve Harvey Show. Through this incredible experience, Sam realized a simple, but profound truth: “When your story connects to God’s story, it leads to a greater story,” says Collier. Equipped with this truth, he has re-planted Hillsong Atlanta as Story Church.
But launching a new church plant is no simple task..especially on a tight deadline. Aiming for an Easter Day launch just two weeks away, Sam and his team needed to connect Story Church to an entirely new platform that could help them manage operations, create an online presence, and receive donations.
That’s where Tithe.ly enters the story.
“Tithe.ly helped us fast-track the approval process to help us get up and running so that we could stand on our own two feet and start receiving donations,” says Sam. Using Tithe.ly’s “Road to Launch” feature, Story Church was able to encourage people to give beyond their regular tithe and offerings. Not only that, but Tithe.ly provided Sam and his team with the detailed insight they needed to build a more effective giving campaign for launch.
Finally, Tithe.ly’s customer support team went above and beyond, reaching out several times a day to make sure everything was running smoothly.
“As a leader, you need all the moments you can get to be reminded that you can do this,” says Sam. For Sam and Story Church, Tithe.ly provided the tools and tailored support they needed to launch quickly and continue to thrive.
